When speed is low, it's tough to control an aircraft in strong and varying winds and gusts.

I live near DFW and we get micro-bursts and gusting, and you do see planes waiving around in the wind on approach and sometimes landing harder on one side.

Must be nice to have a private jet.  No lines, no crowds, etc.

We mere mortals can only dream of such luxury.

Yeah, once you fly on private jets, regular air travel becomes even more painful than it typically is.  No lines, no security, no crowds, no baggage check, no long walks through terminals.  Basically you pull your car into a hanger, walk onto the plane and take off.  When you land, you walk off jet into waiting car and go to wherever you're going.

Useless video.

And don't these 'lux travelers' need to speak to Immigration and Customs?  It ain't just jump into the limo.

Passengers on private fights are pre-cleared and aren't required to go through customs or immigration.  For countries that don't provide pre-clearance, a customs agent meets the flight at the FBO when you land so it takes 2 minutes if that.

Even if I was as rich as Gates or Buffet, I don't think I'd own a private jet.  Wasting that much money would just go against my nature.

However, If I flew a lot and was stinking rich, I'd use something like NetJets.  Same as flying in a private jet without all the cost and headaches.

Having flown on private jets in the past, and I had THAT much money ... you bet I'd have my own jet! Designed to my interior specs.

Usually these guys don't "own" a private jet. It's used like a time share. It's enormously expensive as they pay a large monthly fee for using it. Actually owning a jet of that caliber is usually only done by the billionaires.

Yep, and the NetJets Share program is like a timeshare. https://www.netjets.com/Programs/Program-compare/

I remember seeing a pga player in the last few weeks on tv with a NetJets logo on his shirt.  It wasn't Tiger.  But, regarding Tiger:

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
